inline air cooler

On my mustang, I am using a Paxton Novi 2000. While having it tuned, there was always a worry about intake temperature. This got me wondering if anyone makes an inline cooler which hooks up to the ac system? So instead of running into the dash, it is piped into the inline cooler. I don't use the ac anyways and it has everything it would need except the inline cooler.

The AC system will generate more load and take up more power than you would get from trying to cool the air. It is not large enough or efficient enough. If you want to push that far and cool down the air, use N20 or methanol. A NOVI or just about anything Vortech except for an A trim can make enough power to put the integrity of stock 5.0 block at risk with no need for additional coolers.

I just didn't see where it would matter whether the dash cooler or an inline, it would still be the same load. The tuner had said just normal driving before making boost, the intake temp. was 140-170*. The dazh temp. is usually 42* and so I figured it would work better then air/air.

The AC system doesn't make enough cold air (BTU) to have any real effect on the intake temperature no matter how your tried to pipe it there. it might lower it 1-2 degrees if anything and that power required to drive the AC system will be far more than you would gain with the lower temperatures. Boosted intake temperatures change rapidly as the air is compressed in the SC head, it is heated up, not because the piping is hot, because that is a natural side effect of rapidly compressing a gas (the air in your intake through the supercharger). If you want lower temps, use a boost triggered nitrous oxide or methanol system or rig up a traditional air to air intercooler.

If you are running an air to water intercooler there is a setup designed for the 03/04 Cobras called "killer chiller"

2005 Tahoe LT - DD

Right now, I have no intercooler. I do have a dual methanol injection of pure methanol. I was just thinking is all. The 100% methanol was what it was tuned on. For those that are familar with FAST systems, does it monitor intake temps? I would like to see what kind of difference a 50/50 mixture would do..

If you are running methanol and think you are having temperature issues, you have something else wrong.
If your person/company doing your tuning can't tell you exactly what is going on and why, find another one that knows what they are doing.

Intercoolers exist for the exact reason you need one. Methanol is a stop gap.
